Legit question: Why did you not replace the bumper before spraying the entire car?

Do the community a favor and at least buy one that's already fucked up.
Clean NAs in our area are becoming harder to find for a reasonable price.

Eh, this is normally something we wouldn't do but I sort of justified not spending 375 bucks on the new bumper due to the fact that it's going to get destroyed rather quickly.

It's a little trashed, but has a brand spankin' new soft top that I'm going to swap around with mine, fix the damaged control arm, give it a radiator, and re sell.

So you're ******* it up and putting it back on the market.

As opposed to just fixing your ****.

It's already trashed, it was in a front end accident. It's not in good condition at all -- The only thing nice about it is the top. So not really "******* it up" in the slightest.

You guys are going to love this one

So I picked up this thing... It's pretty destroyed, top is ripped to shreds, passenger LCA is trashed and the front end is crumpled from the guy hitting a pole. The underside is pretty destroyed and typical rocker rust.



I managed to find a front clip for it locally that I picked up on Saturday and going to get on the car as soon as I can.




But before I do that, I'm trying to sell the 1.6 LNC that's in it - It has 150k and runs really well. It will be getting replaced with a KA24det (due to my access to a complete KA swap sitting around at my friends shop and almost a full turbo kit ready to go for it.) Going to be an interesting venture.. Basically will be using this car as a test dummy and once I get everything running 100% I will be switching it all over to my main miata and selling the new one.
